Combined DIRT Ride with Cycling Geelong and the GTC from Torquay to Anglesea on Sunday 14.4.19.

Thanks to Peter J from the GTC for this report (and the great pics) on our joint ride Sunday 14th April:

Just 4 riders for our little run along the cliffs from Torquay to Anglesea, John M, Chris Ha, Peter J and our leader from Cycling Geelong, Dave S. It was a lovely day, lots of Sun and a light breeze. We followed the paths along the cliffs through Torquay, past the RACV Golf Resort and Jan Juc to Bells Beach where the Surf Classic is already under way, amazing the infrastructure set up on the cliff tops. A short run along the road and then we plunged back into the bush along a wide dirt track in front of the houses set in the bush. Looks good but not if there is a bushfire about. Followed a gravel road for a while with some good downhills but of course you get nothing for free and we had to climb out eventually. Some of the track is closed off for repairs and some because of dangerous cliff collapse but some good bypass track has been put in around and through the heather on the hillside. Passed by the Caravan Park, well supported by campers with lots of bikes and kids about. Hit the River and wended our way to the Café and enjoyed a well earned break before heading back along a slightly different route until we could get back on the cliff top track. Returned through Jan Juc as we considered the path would be super busy around Torquay.
A most enjoyable mornings ride, Thanks Dave!
Cheers, Peter J.

–Dave
